Summer Reads Giveaway Hop 6-11 July






Welcome to Summer Reads Giveaway Hop! This event is organized by Kathy from I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Rex Robot Reviews. There are approximately 200 participants and the event runs from July 6th until July 11th.

Summer is usually a season where I read lot of books. I think it has something to do with long and light days and short nights and it seems that there is somehow more time to read. I know that many people would disagree and say, that during the summer you meet friends, you barbecue, you go to summer events. Sure! I do that too... and still have time to read. :) Maybe it's the energy I get from the sunshine and daylight ( I have to mention here, that in Northern Europe the sun rises at 4AM and sets around 10PM - 11PM during summer), I don't know that for sure, but one thing I do know and that is the number of books what I have "consumed" from mid-June until today - 16 books. It's almost book per day.

The other anomaly I am experiencing during the summer is, that even though I read a lot, I am not that quick at reviewing them. I read it, finish it and take the next one. You see, I have time to read, but I am probably little lazier with writing reviews during the summer time - there is simply so much else to do! It's a question of prioritizing and clearly summer time does not have positive influence to reviewing. But is surely affects my reading!

Why am I telling you this? Because it has something to do with my giveaway. As I often tend to, I am challenging the participants during the giveaway!



What can you win this time?



There will be 2 winners this time who will each get a book from The Book Depository.

BUT...

You need to answer two of my questions while entering for the giveaway. Nothing complicated, easy questions for you to answer and fun for me to read!

That's almost it. Tweeting gives you an extra entry. Total of 3 entries only! Easy, right?!

    thanks for making this international!

    ReplyDelete
  46. My genre preference doesn't really change during the summer, but I think I tend to lean more towards mysteries and thrillers during the summer (especially with a family, or contemporary element to them)...so that I'm fulfilled on both a character-based narrative, and so that it's fast-paced enough to keep me distracted from the sweltering heat! :D

    Thank you for being part of the "Summer Reads Giveaway Hop" - for your generosity, may your days be warm & bright all year round. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity! :D
